Welcome to 411's WWE NXT Report 5.01.14
Triple H kicks off the show this week. NXT is about the future, but the line between the present and future can be blurred. You start to see the Shield, the Wyatts, Big E, Damien Sandow, Cesaro and all of these products of the NXT brand. Now there is a new diva, Paige, the new Divas Champion. It's like NXT is taking over. But wait, it gets better. On May 29th there will be another live special, from right here at Full Sail University. The name of the special is NXT Takeover.
Opening credits roll.
